Custom woodwork is a specialty many contractors will offer for any home renovation or new construction projects.  

From bathroom vanities and kitchen cabinets to elaborately carved fireplaces in your living room and custom wine cabinets, handcrafted pieces of art can make all the difference in your home.

That aside, not all spaces around your home are right for special woodworking. If you are determined to make your home unique, follow these quick tips on where to make use of customization.


Before we get started, there are plenty of misconceptions surrounding woodworking. For one, woodworking doesn’t have to be for traditional homes. Some homeowners make the mistake of thinking wood means old and classic, and it can’t fit a modern house.

If you work with the right general contractor, you can add unique wood accents to your home that will fit and feel right with the contemporary décor. However, you’ll want to be careful about where you decide to add wood furniture and cabinets for that seamless design.


These are the most popular spaces for unique, custom woodwork pieces. The reason is due to the prevalence of cabinets, shelves, and drawers that hold all your dishes, glasses, utensils, and cookware.

If you have the luxury of an island unit in your kitchen, you can bolster its look with customization in the space underneath the surface to add that personal touch.


Another area in your home that could benefit from custom woodwork in the bathroom. Matching certain wood species with tiles and marble will give you unlimited options when it comes to the bathroom’s décor.
